Highland Haven is a well-appointed holiday cottage in the Highlands of Scotland. Just a mile or two outside the fishing village of Lochinver, Sutherland, find us at the end of a private drive with only a handful of other houses to be seen. We have stunning sea views and quite often red deer can be seen grazing in the distance. You might spot some other more rare Scottish wildlife if you're lucky, like stoats, weasels, sea-eagles and more. The house is ideal for an active family with a utility room for washing and drying your gear after a day out on the hills. There are some exceptional mountains nearby - only a couple of Munros but all have their own unique character, the most famous being Suilven; a long walk in for a short and steep stint to the summit.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

A perfect base for a West Highland holiday.
The house is strategically placed for many of the desirable locations in the West Highlands, including Clachtoll and Achmelvich beaches, Suilven and Stac Ppllaidh. Sandwood Bay is also well worth a visit , despite being some distance from the house. The great skuas may not welcome you to Handa Island but the thousands of seabirds clinging to the perpendicular cliffs will provide lasting memories. There are a range of walks in Assynt that cater for most ability levels. After a day on the hills or at the beach, it was a pleasure to return to a comfortable exceptionally well equipped house. There is a spacious kitchen with adjacent eating area. The tastefully decorated sitting room has windows on three sides and affords excellent views of the sunset on Loch Inver. On several occasions, we had visits from stags who displayed their velvet antlers as they grazed in the surrounding area. We had a wonderful week and recommend this location for those who wish to explore Assynt.

Comfort and Tranquillity
Very comfortable and well equipped house in a quiet spot - ideal for a relaxing holiday. The sunsets and "resident" deer made it special. It is near a small pebbly cove, but just a short drive to more walks, Sandy beaches and cafes and shops in Lochinver. The owner Mark responded very quickly to queries. Highly recommended.

Fantastic house and location
We enjoyed a lovely stay at highland haven. The house is situated in a private, peaceful location. It has spacious rooms and is finished to a very high standard all round. The kitchen was probably the best kitted out of any holiday home we have stayed in. Marc was very quick to respond to enquiries, a great host. We would definitely stay there again.

A wonderful stay
I arrived on a dark, drizzly afternoon after a long drive. As soon as I opened the front door I knew that I had made a good decision to stay there. One of those homes that give you a hug and with style. Marc had thought of everything, a comprehensive, and understandable, guide to what's what in the house as well as suggestions on places to eat. The views? Absolutely wonderful. Sunset and sunrise and everything in between. The sheep are both calming and amusing. Yes, the red deer really do come into the garden so get your camera ready. The north coast is easily accessible and Loch Assynt is splendid in the early morning before even a breath of wind disturbs its surface. I drove down to Ullapool and saw dolphins swimming around the boat on the way to the Summer Isles. Without doubt, this is the best holiday home that I've had the pleasure of staying in. Just idyllic. Thank you Marc.

Relaxed luxury
We stayed her for a week beginning 24/6/17, the house was very spacious, comfortable and well appointed and we enjoyed a wonderful holiday here. The views are marvellous and we saw a lot of wildlife including, red deer, foxes, peregrine falcon and skuas. On a very personal note we loved the fact that there was ample wardrobe space having been to houses with coat racks instead of actual wardrobes!

We'd happily come again!
Located in a peaceful spot, a spacious, modern, comfortable house, stylishly furnished and decorated, thoughtfully and comprehensively equipped. Large windows give views of the seaward end of the loch and occasional boats visiting the harbour. Sunset into the sea will be visible in April, early May, and again in August (cloud permitting!). Great sea- and shore-bird watching at Inverkirkaig 5 minutes away. Booking was trouble-free, and the house was spotless when we arrived. Recommended.

A home from home, thoroughly recommended!
A lovely stylish and modern holiday cottage in a great central location for exploring Assynt. The owners have thought of everything, well equipped with everything you could possibly need, a real home from home! The views are breath taking from every window, and we loved watching the deer in the garden, and the lambs on the hills just beyond the cottage. Great walks straight from the cottage too, down to nearby beaches, and just a short drive to Lochinver for wonderful restaurants and local shops. Definitely planning to come back again in the future, thank you for a perfect holiday!
